Larry’s impressive business development skills were refined during his 14 years at Dow Jones / The Wall Street Journal in various roles, including US Director, Global Media Sales (New York); General Manager, North Asia (Tokyo); and Director, South Asia/South Pacific (Singapore). Larry also held senior sales positions at The Wall Street Journal in Chicago and Detroit, as well as at The Asian Wall Street Journal in Hong Kong.

The M&A specialty of Larry’s career was launched 20 years ago by the co-founding of eknow, inc., one of the earliest developers of SaaS-based M&A management software platforms. During his tenure there as EVP and co-founder, the Arlington, Virginia-based company added several prestigious Fortune clients who utilized the platform and related consulting services to execute large and complex domestic and cross-border M&A transactions.

Most recently, Larry was CEO and co-founder of Capital Expert Services in Washington D.C. He led business development and operations for the firm which provides expert witness and advisory support services in highly specialized matters, including grand jury reports; M&A due diligence; and ongoing regulatory and compliance advice.

Larry acts as a liaison for our Council alumni by bridging the communication between their needs and our partner's offerings.
